"Blackberries, violets, cracked pepper, spring flowers, and olive tapenade all emerge from the 2019 Syrah Tinaquaic Vineyard, a Côte Rôtie look-alike that's medium-bodied and has supple, elegant tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish. It's another spectacular Syrah from this team." JebDunnuck.com, 95 Points

"41% new French and Hungarian oak puncheons were used for about 18 months of aging on the 2019 Tinaquaic Vineyard Syrah. More blue-fruit driven than the Williamson-Doré.  Feels younger and a touch fresher on the palate. Wild mountain blueberry compote, spiced blue plum, black olive tapenade, sweet earth and spice, and dried lilacs are all present in the glass. Grippy tannins and moderate acidity form the core of the wine, while it finishes with an interesting pepper-focused finish. Better in 2024" International Wine Report, 95 Points 

"The 2019 Syrah Tinaquaic Vineyard is another fabulous edition of one of Santa Barbara's most compelling and distinctive wines. Inky, powerful and voluptuous to the core, the Tinaquaic Syrah possesses tremendous depth from start to finish. Copious blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice and menthol build into the huge finish. This embryonic Syrah has a bright future." Vinous, 93-95 Points
